Paul Chazal
Born in Lyon on May 10, 1983.
Lives and works in Brussels.


Evolving in different disciplines, the work of Paul Chazal takes its source in an approach focused on drawing, especially in an imagery frantically gleaned and considered as a vocabulary, a cosmography, that lend themselves to the creation of facilities. Paul Chazal created his own personal post-apocalyptic lexicon, complex and fantasy based.

Between a child’s play that goes wrong and a real survivalist project, his productions take us back to a specific adolescent imagery of the 80s-90s (Métal Hurlant, Mad Max, Akira, The Warriors) while asking the question of the end of the world as it is envisioned today by alarmist ecologists and survivalists. The worst scenario for most becomes the playground of Paul Chazal.
